Tractor Safety Training Required by Law for Teen Farm/Ranch Workers

 The most common cause of agricultural-related death in Nebraska is overturned tractors and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs).  Employing anyone uncertified under age 16 is a liability risk for farmers if those children operate such equipment.

Annual Achievement Application

       The Nebraska 4-H Annual Achievement Application is for all 4-H participants ages 8-18. It will be used for the selection of county, state, and national awards and recognition, including the selection of delegates to the National 4-H Congress and National 4-H Conference. To serve as a delegate for either national experience, youth must turn ages 15-19 during the calendar year in which the trip occurs. Youth interested in being considered as a delegate for these national experiences must make that designation on their application.
